  • Another vote for Asanté. I don't know if I'm as inept as your mother but I can't be far behind. Once I set up my Asanté a year and a half ago to share broadband among three computers, I just forgot about it. Only problem I had was when my son t…
  • I also think the timing wasn't right. OSX was rather immature at that point. Even if it came out as refined as it is today, just the added complexity and uncertainty of starting with a whole new OS makes the decision to switch even more difficult. …
  • Quote: applenut i'd like to video chat with my family while at college. it's a shame you have no one you want to see. or maybe you're lucky and always surrounded by all the people you love I tried to post earlier but hit the back button I…
  • Yeah, I can't imagine why the hell Id want someone to see me when I chat/talk long distance. Okay, Im 50 years old but still. Even when I was 11 and reading the Weekly Reader (Hey, Weekly Reader, we got it once a month at the most) and they talked a…
  • Doesnt the log-in screen for OSX shake if you use the wrong password? Less dramatically, of course.
  • Quote: Hey, are we all forgetting that Apple is still selling the G4 1.25 MHz Power Mac for $1300-$1600??? That's definitely "PrOSUmER" spec! You are right, iDebaser. There is that option. What Im proposing is a consistent midlevel offering fr…
  • Im thinking more and more the situation HAS to change re. the iMac. Something is broken and it needs to be fixed. And its easy for us to simply call on Apple to reduce the price and/or upgrade the machine. We dont have to run a company. But th…
  • Honestly, I was concerned about the desirability of the iMac before I read this thread. One on hand, I think its a clever and attractive design. I would have bought one but for a great deal on a 733 PM + ASD about 18 months ago. (education store.) …
  • One point that is being missed. One important point. Liquid cooling is not used just because it removes more heat in a given amount of time. It is also because it tends to equalize the temperature in a system. In other words, minimize hot spots. …
  • Unless Apple has a truly innovative idea, stay with the one button. You know if they sold a 2-button, scrolling mouse it would be a $100 anyway. Everybody should have a 2nd mouse for backup. Buy your $20 third party mouse and put the Apple 1-but…
  • Thank you, Synp, for explaining that a true 64-bit application and "regular" programs that are simply optimized for the 970. Putting it into 2 categories really helped. I can certainly see why there are no applications on the horizon that will w…
  • Before I can predict (not that anyone is waiting for my predictions ), I have a question for my more learned colleagues: For the software developers, would there be an advantage in having more of Apple's computer line using 64 bit chips? Would t…
  • Dave, I think I might have mislead you in my post above. I did not get a faithful reproduction of what was on the screen. It was closer when landscape was selected on page setup. But I am getting just what you described with your Xs: XXXXXXX…
  • Interesting. I have an Epson 740 and I had the Cannon i850 so I can be of some help. I had read great reviews of the 850 and there was a $30 rebate at Costco. BUt I returned it. Not that there was anything wrong with it but it just wasnt enough of a…
  • Quote: Nobody else has this printing problem? Heck it even shows up on this very page... Try this right now... File-->Print Dave, I did print this page. True, it did not print the same way (format?) as it appears here. Even on la…
  • I just started using Safari. But there must be problem with its graphics renderding or something. Cause I see the room clearly Murbot, but it appears to be empty.
  • So the Powermacs were priced to protect the iMacs? Im not so sure. Im not a Mac expert but it seems there has always been overlap in the Power/iMac models. I think they cost $2000 because they cost more to make given the many upgrades over the previ…
  • I havent heard of anyone complaining about the price of the high end model understandably. The Best model is essentially a business machine and for that, its a good buy. But the low end is a little disappointing. Its relatively high price has spurre…
  • I agree, the standard RAM is inadequate and one drive bay is inconvenient. Especially that now the really are POWER machines they shouldn't have these weaknesses. But the #1 problem is...surprise!--the price. Not that they arent worth it but it …
  • I mainly just peruse the boards here because I'm a novice and cant really contribute intelligently but I glean a bit of knowledge here and there. For example, With some general help from the posts and some specific help from certain members, I w…
